My trip to Japan in 2007 started as I flew in to Centrair, the artificial airport island built in the Aichi prefecture, about 170 miles southwest of Tokyo and about ten minutes by train to Tokoname. It is a new and incredibly modern airport in every way, epitomising the way Japan seems to be moving at an unbelievable pace into the 21st century. Its most interesting feature was the massive ceramic wall and porcelain ball sculptures by Yoshikawa Masamichi on the lower floors.
